Pedro Neto is unlikely to return tomorrow for Wolves after two months out with a hamstring injury. Tommy Doyle is available, having been ineligible to face parent club Manchester City last weekend.

Head coach Gary O’Neil will be back on the touchline after serving a one-match ban.

Crystal Palace defender Marc Guehi made his comeback as a late substitute against Manchester United on Monday night after three months out with a knee injury.



  • Pedro Neto has returned to training but will not be involved on Saturday because he has “not done enough at high speeds to guarantee it’s not a risk for him”. However, Santiago Bueno is back and available.

  • O’Neil said “the change in results and momentum” show how injuries have impacted them this season, adding: “No excuse, of course – we understand all teams have injuries. To have no forwards available for a long part of the season is tough in the Premier League.”

  • On next season: “We want to push on so I don’t want it so be seen as ‘yeah we’ve done OK this year and everyone can go off and be happy’. It’s something to build on.”

  • He said he believes Crystal Palace’s upturn in form is down to both the change in manager and key players returning. He said: “The new coach and fresh ideas, they’ve got [Ebrechi] Eze and [Michael] Olise back, and [Marc] Guehi coming back. Roy Hodgson did a fantastic job for a very long time. The changes are not only due to form and not only due to a change of coach. It will be a tough test for us – they’re on a really good run.”

  • He added: “A last home game that we want to be enjoyable for us and the fans. A chance to go out on a high.”

  • On the club’s plans for the summer, O’Neil said there is lots still to be discussed but he “isn’t sure how much they will be able to do”. He added: “I don’t think there will be money available to us if nobody leaves. If we decided not to sell a big player there may be some bits and pieces we can do. The club is expected – in the foreseeable future, maybe not long-term future – to be able to fund itself.”



  • Wolves have lost five of the six most recent Premier League meetings, with the exception a 2-0 victory at Molineux in April last season.

  • Crystal Palace won this season’s reverse fixture 3-2 in September when Roy Hodgson was still in charge. Odsonne Edouard scored twice for the Eagles.

Crystal Palace

  • Palace need to win their remaining two matches to equal the club Premier League record points total of 49 from 1992-93 and 2018-19.

  • The Eagles have taken 13 points from their past five fixtures.

  • Crystal Palace have won the past five Premier League games in which Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise both started. The pair scored a combined 11 of the team’s 16 goals in those matches.

  • They’ve won five of their 11 league fixtures under Oliver Glasner, compared to six victories in 24 attempts under Roy Hodgson this season.

  • However, their solitary win in 12 Premier League away games was by 1-0 at Liverpool in April.

  • Jean-Philippe Mateta has scored nine Premier League goals since Glasner became manager in February; only Cole Palmer (11) and Alexander Isak (10) have been more prolific over the same period.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

  • Wolves beat Luton in their previous home game but it’s their only win in nine attempts in all competitions (D2, L6).

  • They have not won their final home league fixture of a season since 2020, when they defeated Crystal Palace 2-0.

  • Gary O’Neil’s side have scored 49 Premier League goals this season, two short of their club record set in 2019-20.

  • Wolves are the only team in Europe’s top five leagues yet to score in the top flight from outside the penalty area in 2023-24.

  • They have conceded 29 goals in 15 top-flight games since the start of February, the fourth worst record in the division.

  • Hwang Hee-chan can become the first Wolves player to score in three successive league matches since Raul Jimenez in November 2019.

  • Max Kilman is one of two outfield players to play every Premier League minute for his club this season, alongside Arsenal’s William Saliba.

  • Pablo Sarabia celebrates his 32nd birthday on the day of this game.
